You can save the SH file in a text file and import to IT that way. sm
You may have to do some cleanup in the SH text file, but it sure would be faster than re-entering them all manually.
no problem... just go to File and Save As
then from the drop-down box chose the Word .doc format to save your file as.  You can also program one of your F keys or a control or alt key to do this for you, using the Tools --- Settings --- Customize --- Keyboard
You need to open it first, then click on File, then Save As,
Right click the voice file and save it to your computer.

I just pull up in word and save as Rich Text File...nm
Just open glo file in Word, highlight all, then change case and save back
to glo file. Use the Alt key trick to highlight just the column of words, then Shift + F3 to toggle through the change case commands. First save your glossary under a different name so you also keep the original.
You can't just open the attachment. You need to save it to a file and then open SM

If it is Shorthand, save the SPF file to a disk, then if you buy Shorthand yourself....
you can just drop the SPF file into it. That is not dishonest since you are the one who put the macros in. I am sure is it is another Expander there is a way to save the macro file and then drop it in the expander you buy on your own.
save it for another day
Yes, I agree with you, but apparently some people are unable to NOT be rude, so I have decided to give it up for today..... it just takes to much energy to argue. Not to mention, they can't even grasp the fact that you and I are two DIFFERENT PEOPLE................. so, there ya go.

oh, and bye the bye, in the churches I grew up in Amen was a form of agreement.
Can you tell me how you save your
that it cannot be saved. I'm sure this is a no brainer and I'm making it worse by thinking too much about it - any help would be appreciated.
Will somebody save me?

Hi, deep trouble here.  Reorganized under my desk (bad mistake, I guess, although the cords are nice and lined up now) and when I plugged the C-phone back in it went crazy and now I get dial tone from handset, but that is all.  Can't find the manual after searching for hours.  Anyone know what might be wrong or if I need to reprogram this thing?  I went to their website, but it is down at the place where you sign in.  Of course!  Can't work, so need as much help as I can get.  Thanks in advance. 



Even if you save yourself a
template, you still listen to the entire report and change the words as necessary. You don't leave it if that's not how it's dictated. Setting up your own template saves time & Keystrokes because a lot of times you will have entire sentences or sections the same, but you still must ALWAYS listen to the entire report & make any and all changes.

In addition to OPs, I also make macros for PEs, ROSs, etc., for dictators who usually are repetitive.
I always use RXList. com on the web and save
paper that way:)
Did you save the sound
Did you save that sound file on your computer? That has surely got to be a first!!
did you try to hit F11 anyway? Usually you cannot see them after you save the document.. but they a
Do yourself a favor & save yourself a ton
of grief. Get a reputable real estate agent and don't screw with these FSBO agents.  I promise that all they will do is take your money and won't really WORK to sell your house. That's the difference.  A REPUTABLE agent will work their butts off to sell your house.
It will save the phrase but not
the bold, does not come out bolded.  What else can I do?
Then seriously, save it to your desktop. That's it.
save it to a disc
Save and print
I print and deliver, save on hard drive for one year and then on CD or zip forever it seems.  Finally went through and threw out files from 10 years ago. 
Is there someway to save something
like the end of a letter. i.e. Thank you for the referral of the patient. Sincerely, Doc's name etc. He ends all his letters the same way. My niece said that somehow I could put that in my computer and just push something like F7 and it would automatically print that. Have any idea about this? Thanks!
Save as option
I do not use Word, but is there a save as option? From there it may give you options as to what type of file to save as. I think if you choose something like a text file, it may get rid of formatting, but not sure.
try save as and change to .wav

The answer is yes but always save
your files before you do any upgrade just to be on the safe side. You can open 2003 documents in 2007 and they open just like they always have. Word 2007 opens them in compatability form but that is not something you see its built in to the program. However, unless you save your documents as "Word 97-2003 Document" (already built in to the options of 2007 when you click save as or you can set it up to always do that) anyone else without 2007 will not be able to open them unless they have the compatability patch. Same with Excel documents.

I have both intances of 2003 and 2007 running on my computer and can swtich back and forth without any problems.

Feel free to email me directly with any other questions.
Tried that... and still doesn't save right or
load for my autotext. :( 
I think the advice you got to get it, try it, save the
receipt was good advice. What do you expect. How rude.
Did you save any of the e-mails

If so, then just include that with a nice letter to your past employers about the fact that your working arrangement did not work out. 

If that doesn't work, you may want to see if there is a way to sue her for defamation of character.  She has to have good grounds to be calling your previous employers.  Was this the lady at Seascript?  She seemed to have some problems, but I think she was getting help.

Save what? The normal.dot?
If you checked the option to prompt you to save the normal template, you will be asked if you want to save changes that affect the normal.dot. This can be formatted AutoCorrect entries, AutoText entries, macros, toolbar changes, and a few other changes.

If you clear the check for the prompt option, changes will be saved anyway and you will not get the message.

Or are you being asked to resave the normal.dot to another name? If that's the case, you have a problem.

Save the e-mails you get and, when you
get one from QA person B that contradicts what QA person A said in the old one, reply to B with a cc to A saying in a very nice and professional way that you had understood it to be such-and-such based on what A had told you before. This will start a dialogue among the QA folks and, hopefully, the correct answer will be found and published.
save your money...
I've used it before. The software they include on the cd is Express Scribe which can be downloaded for free on the internet.


I was thinking about buying the All 'n One kit too, but I found that it was cheaper to buy the foot pedal and headphones separately and download the software for free.

I'll tell you why: To save on TAT.
For my company, I do not save any
patient files on my laptop, so therefore no breech of security is possible and I transfer the files over the internet, just the same as with my PC.
It is so they can save money....
If they outsource, they will have 24/7 coverage, no need to pay out benefits, no need to pay vacation time, etc.  This has happened to many, but all that you can really do is either work for that outsourced company or find another job.  It's tough out there!  Sorry to hear that you're being outsourced.  You are not obsolete though, as I'm making more money anyway now than I ever have at my hourly job that I lost after 15 years to outsourcing... 
Everyone is trying to save money
the short way of saying between the head and stomach?  LOL  Thanks for the cheering up today!
People should save their compassion for someone
The liberal-loonies never learn. How sad.
It's just another way some companies have found to save
Save reports and use the compilations to get
a great start on your own glossary. I've done several for different accounts to customize them to my own.
Stay with production if you want to save your
reputation. I have never found a shift supervisor or team leader with any integrity and unless you can shift all your words around easily to adapt to every situation, stay where you are. In short, supervisors and leads have learned to be masters at lying.
bible thumpers. god save us.

Save your posting and typing, lol.
Wanted to save for that vacation and
pay my community assessment, my taxes for my car here in Georgia are almost 600$ and that is due soon and I would love to work that way. I do not think DH would be willing to have more taken out as he pays the really big bills and I have the "flunkies." I really appreciate the information.
I would do it just to save my hands from further abuse! nm
I live on one job and save the earnings from the 2nd.
I am retiring at 55. Only 10 years left.

I've always worked 2 jobs and saved 100% of the 2nd one.

Have a list of places I want to go and things to do when I retire. Gotta get started early. :)

save your marriage but be smart

I do notice you started back pedalling and saying "oh it's not really so bad and he is my best friend" Once you started getting some responses to get out of the marriage. 

I am glad you can see that your husband and marriage has some really positive traits but please it won't help you to minimize the areas where you are having trouble just because you are under fire.

I don't agree  that you should just up and leave your husband. He does sound like he might have some very serious issues and possibly you as well for putting up with this treatment but I dont' judge because each relationship can have some problems.  The key is recognize and try to solve not to fight.

 Tell me -- how can you miniimze the fact your husband is living it up so to speak -- going out with friends whenever he wants WITHOUT you.  While you stay home like menial labor taking care of kids. 

A marriage is  partnership where each individual needs to be able to pursue their own interests but the thoughts, feelings and well being of their partner has to come into play as well.  A marriage cannot survive when only one partners needs are being met and the other's are ignored. It just depends how long you are willing to put up with it or how long before he crosses another line (into an affair maybe when he is out alone). This is dangerous territory and you need to stop minimizing the situation and realize you marriage might be in grave danger.

What is sounds like is your husband wants his cake and to eat it too. He wants a great social life without you and kids tagging along -- reliving his single days possibly -- working out when he wants, going out to lunch or dinner.

There is nothing wrong with him pursing his individual interest and friendships --- we don't become bound at the hip when we become married -- we need to have our own sense of self. But the problem here is he DOES have a sense of self and readily pursues his own interestes but does ALLOW you to do the same. This is not partnership -- but it is control and oppression. 

While you still may get along well, have great sex etc this is not a healthy realtionship for either of you and your children will see that you constantly defer your dreams and desires and wants at your husbands wishes whilst he does whatever he wants.  Is this a lesson you want to teach them?  That woman should be kept in the home and be basically a maid, a cook, a childcare provider and at-home worker but does not deserve respect and dignity from husband and to be treated equally?

You can turn this around.  I am not suggesting you just bail.  Do as you suggested.  Stand up to your husband. Don't argue. Simply state (don't ask) that you will be going out -- if he refuses to watch the children then DO hire the sitter.  When you are both more calm let him know that you understand his desire to pursue his own interests and friendships and your support that -- but you deserve the same right.  Also you both need to balance those things with family time -- which should come first.

Consider martial counseling but don't just leave. See if he will agree. You and your husband need to see why he is so passive/aggressive towards you and why you are willing to put up with that. If you are religious seek Christian couseling and prayer from a pastor to help save your marriage.

However, if he refuses to change, refuses counseling you may come to a crossroad where you might have to consider if you can live under these conditions.

You should be afraid my dear.  I am divorced had a similar husband. I would be very frightened your hubby might be having an affair or might consider one.  He has you under his thumb... he comes and goes as he pleases and there are no repercussions. He does not respect your rights or see you as an equal patner. What does he do with his "buddys" -- go to the bars? Are there late nights? Business trips?

I am truly not trying to be mean but you need to open your eyes to the possibility where this might be going... and please do NOT say it won't happen to me because ALL women who have had a husband cheat think that. 

Also get yourself an education if you don't have one - work on a degree. I know you work as an MT but can you support a house and 3 children on that??  If you marriage does end... what will you do to make a living? Start thinking of taking some online courses or one night at community college.  Get another skill if you don't make enough as an MT.

Please just consider advice from someone who has been there. I am a single Mom with 2 boys. Was married over 10 years.  Been there and now struggling to make ends meat as a single parent. Wish someone had advised me the same. 

By all means work on your marriage but be prepared. Get educated. Save some of you own money in a bank account don't keep everything in his name.... It's hard to fight denial but you need to watch our for your kids and your future while trying to fight for the marriage.





Get one, save receipt, and if not happy with it,
There's a download to save to WP5.1, not open. Try
using the Recover Text From Any File filter. Drop down the file types in the open dialog box to find this filter. Save the documents to your hard drive first--don't try to open them from the disks.
It is a way to save things to your instant
text. For example -

treat - tr
treated - trd
treatment - trm
treating - trg

you use the first part of the word or phrase, and then the last part at the combining form.
